The delegates, led by MP Zaid Al-Atoum, emphasized the correlation between SDG 17, which revitalizes the global partnership for sustainable development, and the other SDGs, particularly SDG 16, which promotes just, peaceful, and inclusive societies.

Atoum briefed participants in the forum on the Jordanian perspective regarding the role of parliament in advancing legislation supporting the SDGs and efficiently exercising its oversight function in this area.

“Without a parliament that is capable of exercising its legislative responsibilities, there will be no effective oversight to achieve any of the desired SDGs,” he added, pointing to some of Jordan’s SDGs achievements and areas that still need to be developed, primarily those related to poverty and unemployment.

The Kingdom’s Voluntary National Review 2022 was also presented during the forum.
